2006 Mitsubishi Outlander Owner Comments

Horrible design on primary lower beams H1 bulbs headlights. Socket becomes loose and/or fusing tight and burns out quickly. Same design as some Japan models like Honda element use of H1 bulb and stanley socket is so dysfunctional. I installed secondary foglight system running on other lines - since lights go out a lot easy in snow and rain. Its been happening for yrs, I bought car used.
